Rated 5 out of 5 by from My beauty hero Very nice refreshing scent not too harsh on the skin. Left my face a bit red after use and felt a bit on fire but it resided. The Erno Laszlo Hydra-Therapy foaming Cleanse has a pretty pink bottle and a pearlized appearance. I can feel my pores unclog and feel open and reflective. Glad I was able to have an opportunity to try Erno Laszlo's product I was not familiar with this brand prior to use but I am a fan now. I also used this after a wedding I went to and it completely cleaned the makeup off my face as well. Overall, great product I would buy again and again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite cleanser! I am so impressed with this cleanser! The texture is very creamy and luxurious with a light, beautiful scent. As I began to massage this cleanser onto my skin, I was amazed at how it turned into a foaming texture. What a fabulous experience! Using this really felt like a spa experience! This cleanser was effective at thoroughly removing all my makeup in a gentle manner. It not only results in beautifully clean skin but my skin has never felt so soft and moisturized. Plus, there is a new glow to my complexion. I have definitely found my new favorite cleanser!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Face Cleanser with the Best Scent!!! Trying the new Erno Laszlo Hydra- Therapy Foaming Cleanse was very exciting because I've never tried an Erno Laszlo product before! As soon as I opened the bottle, I smelled the cleanser because the smell of my facial cleanser really matters to me. The smell is so wonderful! I highly recommend this cleanser if you're looking for something to give you a deep cleanse. I have sensitive skin, so I was a little hesitant at first to try it but it didn't bother my skin at all and actually made it feel really smooth after I used it. Be careful to not get it into your eyes because I did and it did burn but after rinsing my eyes with water I was fine! Definitely will be buying this again when I run out! A+ in my book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this face wash! The lather is so silky. It isn't a thick foam but it definitely does foam up a bit. This leaves my face so soft. I hate cleansers that leave my face squeaky clean because then that turns to dry skin for me. This is not like that. After drying my face it feels smooth and hydrated. I barely have to use any at all so this will last a long time. The scent is so nice. It is slightly floral but clean at the same time. It is not overpowering. This cleanser is exactly what I had hoped it would be. I definitely recommend it to anyone that wants a gentle, nondrying cleanser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my new favorite cleanser! This is my new favorite cleanser! This is a creamy cleanser that foams up well and has a very light, nice scent to it. It cleans deep, but after rinsing, your face remains moist – just right for applying moisturizer. Not much product is needed and the tube is large – I expect it to last quite a long time. As with all Erno products, the packaging is hefty and looks great on your counter. Price is perfect for the quantity you receive. I would definitely recommend this for a clean that isn’t drying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth & Silky!! When I first opened it I of course smelled of it. Such a beautiful scent. It is so creamy and smooth. When I put it on my skin it made it so silky and smooth feeling. It seemed to brighten my skin right away. When you put it on it is like a dry cream but then you add water and it turns it so silky. It instantly hydrates your skin also. I love this product. The package it came in is so pretty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice cleanse I really love how this smells. It goes on thick and really is easy to apply while in the shower or just in front of sink. It is super thick and lathers up well. I will say that after I use it, my face feels so much better....but it tends to get very dry quickly if I don't put on any moisturizer immediately after cleansing. Overall I am really enjoying this item.

Is this like the old product Phelityl cleansing gel?

Asked by: face
I can't answer that because I never used the old one. But, I can tell you it takes very little of this cleanser to do the job and it gets your face clean without drying it out.

I usually use the Sea Mud Soap due to my 2 o'clock skin. I am now on Retin A which produces some days that are more dry than others. Would you recommend this product?

Asked by: Sunshine
No.  Only Cetaphil Daily Cleanser if you’re using Rx strength Retin-A - in my past experience anyhow- but also it depends what strength your on and how often you use the Retin-A.  Out of all the Laszlo product line cleansers I would be tempted to try this one but truly it could further irritate the skin from the fragrances used alone.... try and see but doubtful then again it could soothe the skin.  I’d ask my dermatologist to look at the ingredients & tell me if it’s worth a try.

Is this a replacement for the soap and oil?

Asked by: Golfnut92
I bought this for my son on the recommendation of the Laszlo customer service rep. She said men's skin does not need as much moisture as women's and recommended this as the only cleanser. He uses this only, no soap, no oil and his skin does feel better and softer, no need even for moisturizer!

Can this product be used if skin is oily and prone to have breakouts?

Asked by: Jojo47
I am happy with this product, but I am not prone to breakouts, and my skin is on the dry side. So, I don’t know if it’s right for you.

I have a question about the size of Hydra-Therapy foaming cleanser -- the $45 tube is listed as 1 ounce on your site, but the photo of the tube and box says 3.3 ounces (and the tube used in the demo video looks larger than 1 oz.) Which is correct?

Asked by: Davie
The correct size is 3.3 fl oz, or 100 ml. I apologize for the confusion! We appreciate the call out, and have corrected the size on the product page.

Does this need a pre-oil? Is it for sensitive, dry skins like the long discontinued white bar soap for 8’00 skins/

Asked by: JulieDK
No, this product is meant to be used alone, and does not need to be paired with a Cleansing Oil. It is part of our hydrating line, and would be ideal for dry skin types. It also contains many soothing ingredients, so it will be safe and gentle for sensitive skin as well.
